To the Editor:
There is an old legend that says there are two wolves in all of us. One is an evil wolf and one is a good wolf. The evil wolf is anger, sorrow, envy regret, arrogance and all the qualities that do not make us a person that others enjoy being with.
The good wolf is joy, peace, love, hope and the many qualities that endear us to others.
In our everyday lives there is a terrible fight going on within us between these two wolves and the one we feed will be the winner. Now there is no way that we can ever get rid of the first wolf and by beating ourselves up trying to only makes our situation worse.
We need both wolves in our lives to maneuver through the many traps and pitfalls that live puts in our path but we need to feed both wolves in order to defeat the internal struggle we face. Realistically in order to survive we need all of these traits but not in excess and not by trying to hide the one that causes us to become a hateful person.
Today it seems that the bad wolf has taken over many segments of society and no one is trying to place any filters on it. Those who hate and destroy will never realize that they are being pulled apart by a force that they have allowed to grow inside of them and sooner or later they will have nothing.
